You really don’t.

The Pirates give up 6 to 8 outs almost every night Barajas and Barmes start together. If you’re buying the argument about their defense then you’re drinking the P.R. Kool Aid.

Liar. “Actually in the last ten games, both have started five games. If you
included today’s game, Barajas has started 6 of the last 11. If you go
back to the prervious 12, Barajas has started 7.”

Penguin owns you.

Great guy and a hard worker. Reminds me a little of Mike Lavalliere, maybe because he’s not very big.

Offensively, of course YES.
Still I would have liked included in this article comparisons on their defensive #s, though both i believe are below average.
Both seem OK in blocking the plate and bad pitches.
Why are both their arms so bad at throwing base stealers out? Are our pitchers just that bad at holding runners?
Both seem to be below average in pitch framing skills, but would have liked to see some info on that as well.
Pitch calling is over-rated, but just curious the #s for the pitchers when either catcher starts.

McKenry is not the type of player who should be a traditional starting catcher. Those are a rare breed right now. Only 6 players have starter 80+ games at catcher this season. McKenry has however earned the large half of the time share.

Rod will make a wonderful backup! lol
